been dozens of gun-related deaths since the sandy hook massacre and the nra is still doubling down on its plan to add more guns to schools. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. >> that's the wrong debate to have if you want to talk about protecting our children. >> well, this time the nra's remarks could actually be a good thing for more gun regulation. we'll explain why next on "now."

, of course, is can the outrage following sandy hook be sustained? i want to show a graphic that talks about sort of how we've covered these events immediately after they've happened. not just the sandy hook shooting, but the previous shooting of gabby giffords, et cetera, and this washington post graphic actually shows new stories about gun control. the aurora shooting and the representative gabby giffords shooting, but if you look at that kufsh, it quickly falls off in the weeks thereafter. as horrible assist sandy hook was, is there any chance with all the other news with the fess cal cliff, with everything else that, we can sustain the level of outrage long enough for a task force to produce legislation that can pass? >> i think if it was ever going to happen, it will happen now. we're seeing things we have never seen the president do, and we're seeing thing in congress we haven't seen quite at this level. i mean, the president for the first time in his entire time in the white house is actually talking about gun control, period. that alone is progress. the only things he has done to dat

tragedies have. i think of hurricane sandy, which also promoted the idea of we must be a community, not just individualistic actors, but it's very important what dr. emmanuel said. i haven't looked at what this grand bargain may lead to, but if it leads to further cuts in mental health funding and also the irony that in states where you have governors, for example, who are pushing hard for consealed weapons, those are the very states where people, the governors, have pushed back on medicaid, which as dr. emmanuel said, is so critical for so many with members of the jury illness. i think the conversation about mental illness is critical. what i would just say is don't let it lead to a resignation or a turning away from the importance of gun safety because that has to remain fused in a sense. treat mental illness. don't criminalize those, but more treatment, care, and attention to making sure that you don't get that bushmaster weapon in the hands of someone. think of pumping, what is it, three to four rounds into each small child. i mean, without that, it's still dangerous, but you reduce the

calls pornographic client. >> i think he spat in the faces of the families of the victims of sandy hook. i think he stood up there and showed such tremendous ugliness and the real fantasy here is that this legion of armed volunteers, i believe, asa hutchinson said -- the fantasy is that they are going to somehow avert what we saw as opposed to controlling the stock of semiautomatic weapons. so i think he can change the subject all he wants. we've seen a lot of changing the subject this week. everything blaming from lack of god to feminism, but i think everybody really understands that if a madman has -- if they happen to be legal, then they understand what's really happening here. >> i would like to point out that we are in a family culture that has video games. you know -- >> what? >> i know. it's shocking. i'm about to break some news here. you know, the grand theft auto was created by a company in england. >> they have them in japan too. >> no. >> how many people know their teachers and their teacher's guards well enough to arm all of the -- even if it was -- >> gun violence doesn't
